george bush. senior advisor to reagan, you've been around for a long time, okay. and you've got a book here, out in paperback now called keeping the republic, saving america by trusting americans. so what do you mean by that? do i have to trust all americans? because my understanding is there are about 47% who are parasites. (cheers and applause) can we trust each other? >> yeah, sure. and you know, i think the point, stephen, is that democracy really only works if people are allowed to make their own decisions. and i think a lot of folks with perfectly good intentions believe that you or i maybe we're just victims, you know, and we need them to page decision for us. we might pick the wrong mortgage or the wrong credit card or the wrong health care. we might pick the wrong light bulb, you know. >> stephen: uh-huh. >> so you know-- . >> stephen: we might buy paint that has lead in it. we might drive cars that have lead in it. we might live next to a nuclear power plant that has these burdensome regulations on it, all of these dangerous things that make us victims. >> yeah, well, you kno
's been polling and not only did he denounce george w. bush but those democrats who went for the radical regulation. he was very clear about that. and he's populous. what romney has recognized there is real pain out there and people want something done. if obama is more of the same, he's in trouble. >> eliot: look, mitt romney is appeal to go folks right now to folks whose logic is give me something different. the burden is on the president is to say yes but the something different that he's offering is the same george w. bush that was offered in the first place. he does not close the circle. i want to make this point. the adcdos who came out and said you have to raise taxes. does that puncture the balloon of the entirety of the logic of mitt romney. >> it may puncture it if you want to analyze this in logical terms. >> eliot: you're not saying logic is not in politics. >> i don't think it is right now. you may have fired an aide who wrote a speech like that. i think romney is quite wise not to. the banality of what he says is central. he does not want to spell out what he's going to say
love you dearly, but i don'temember you focusing on the pitives with george bush being president, but i'm getting old. >> i don't remember either. >> the economy's 2%, and even if you want to paint it, it would take us eight or nine years to be back to the employment weather during the highs of the last administration. to get to 4%, it takes that long to get all the jobs back. people can't wait that long. >> if it never moves from this level -- kneeling kneel it's been -- neil: it's been a long time. i mean, we shouldn't -- averaginit out, and if this is the new normal, you know, less than normal, and this is as good as it gets, maybe for good awhile as it gets, i can understand why companies sort of, you know, pull their horns in. >> yeah, th new normal, neil, let's celebrate mediocrity. in the united states? neil: re. , i built a college career on that. >> so did i. that gets you through, but i want more of what adam is smoking in california, neil. he's talking about housing should recover, banks should legend. those are hopey things we can't count on to grow the economy. we need real
, and that means less profit for our employers. john: president george w. bush criticized for trying to sell propaganda after two months from invasing iraq, flew to the pacific and then was had the big mission accomplished banner behind him, he declared -- >> in the battle of iraq, the united states and our allies have prevailed. [cheers and applause] jowrn: so when he said that, everybody was thrilled. why is that a gaffe? >> i think the left tried to spin that it was a gaffe, but because it was so unsettling on the ground, in iraq, it didn't really mirror what a lot of the news reports were; however, again, if you're going to spin that, he was correct. they did accomplish the msion which they outlined origally at the time. john: and then reality in the next few months, and that statement looked done. >> nay got into the nation building. the goal was to topple hussein. they accomplished that. if i spin this, i say it was a nice pat on the back to the men and women in uniform who accomplished that goal. what's wrong with that? my favorite part was the oh, how dare you resesponse. john: how d

to the george bush era, and i am not -- i was extremely pessimistic when george bush got re-elected. as a matter of fact, one of the headlines in the british press said how can america be so stupid? now, if mitt romney and paul ryan win the election, i think the headlines will be the same. host: anderson, let's get back to the economy. talk to me about signs that you see -- signs that make you optimistic in brooklyn. talk to me about the housing -- caller: well, as a matter of fact, i'm glad you mentioned brooklyn, because yesterday i was down at flatbush, atlantic avenue, and that, what do you call it, the barclays center, where the home of the brooklyn nets will be, there is a lot of economic activity. and this economic activity started with metrotech, which was on flatbush avenue, and it went on to and is spread ago cross downtown brooklyn. it's becoming to look like upper manhattan, midtown. and, you know, you see people's enthusiasm bringing these businesses in the area, and i work in manhattan, and you see, you know, you've seen a lot of hiring by big companies. you know, manhattan is a br
rondando el fantasma del 2000 cuando george bush gaÓo la no Árida y la elecciÓn por 537 votos, mientras al gore gaÓo el voto popular. en el 2012, la florida es clave y no hay claras seÑales de quien va la delantera. segÚn el promedio de encuestas, como carros en una montaÑa rusa, las campaÑas tienen altibajos y al comienzo de septiembre, los candidatos casi chocan, por su escasa distancia de una dÉcima de punto. 46. 4% obama y 46,3% romney. ahora romney aventaja a obama 47. 9%. con 47% para el presidente, menos de un punto. >>> los candidatos estÁn empatados en la predicciÓn de voto de las encuestas. las diferencias no son estadÍsticamente significativas. cada voto cuenta. el titular prado cionalmente suele llevar la ventaja. >>> casi siempre el presidente va a la reelecciÓn fÁcilmente no con estos margenes. y las elecciones mÁs apretadas como el 2004. estamos en esta situaciÓn con el presidente bush que estÁ. >>> si la contienda es cerrada como a esta hora, es posible que uno de los candidatos gane en un estado, por un margen estrecho, y que inmediatamente por ley, se pida u
court declared george bush the victor of the election, they've spent nearly $1 billion in to push forward a right-wing agenda. that includes funding think tanks, hoover, manhattan institute, to funding the activities on the ground of voter suppression and activities that take away the right of the people to exercise that sacred right of the franchise. they are massive. >> scot, i want to pause. i've been framing this as kind of buying your vote through advertising and that kind of thing. but what i found fascinating about the bradley foundation is they lay the intellectual justification for a variety of conservative policy positions. they fund research. they also fund the arts and things that are kind of community-based within wisconsin and milwaukee. but that idea of laying the intellectual framework suggests to me that this is not easily rooted out, for example, with new legislation. >> no. and the thing is, melissa, they have spent half a billion dollars. 60% of that is for organizations outside the state of wisconsin. they create science, junk science in universities and these
has prpraised george w. bush as a great economic steward and dick cheney as someone who showed great judgment. >> attacking me is not an agenda. >> there is a sample of the foreign policy debate. charles krauthammer is off this week, but after the debate, i heard him say on fox news that romney won the debate unequivocally, not just tactically, but strategically. in this week's column, he said was the president's tone petty and small and that romney looked presidential. >> i thought this was an example of where we got me-too mitt. he essentially agreed with president obama on most of the key issues. >> sounded like he was running for secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. >> he agreed with him on afghanistan, iraq, iran. the suggestion is that he was trying to tone down and become presidential. i don't know if that is the case. i think that he was stuck on his heels by obama's very direct challenge to him, and i don't think he looked very presidential at all. he looked like somebody who was captain of his talking points, and once he got past is talking points, all he could do
, 800,000 jobs lost. he inherited what george bush and dick cheney gave him. in the four years he's been president, he's made steady improvement. he stabilized the financial system, he saved the automobile industry. he needs another four years in order to make more improvements because there's still lots of improvements that need to be made including more jobs. so let's give him four years rather than go to a man who is so slick that we don't even know from the primaries to now what he stands for. >> colonel wilkerson, in the comment he made, he said when you look at colin powell, there may be other reasons he would support president obama. what does this say about the republican party? isn't this getting to be somewhat of a brand of the republican party? >> i think it was an unfortunate slip of words, but you're insinuating something that is absolutely accurate. my party, unfortunately, is the of those people who are still basing their decision on race. let me be candid. my party is full of racists. the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants president obama out of the whit
at this. kennedy, johnson, carter 13%. reagan george w. bush, obama 1.4%. that is the growth of government spending. now that that you just saw here that is the so-called status quo, progress. so if mitt romney's big change means he is going to skew the tax code in favor of the folks at the top, you can have that kind of change. if mitt romney's kind of change is to change back to george w. bush's policies, that's the kind of change i can't believe in. that's the kind of change we do not need. we're not at the promise land yet, but we are on the right track, and you are going to decide in eleven days whether we're going to turn back. up next if i didn't know better, i would say mitt romney's surrogates held a contest this week. let's see who can say something so outrageous that the can digit will have to go onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university we're teaming up with companies like ci
the fact that the wars that george bush brought us into, and there's no weapons, nothing. it's like he doesn't--i don't know. >> cenk: did you walk away thinking, now that i've seen guys on both sides i'm clearer on my political position? >> no, for me personally i'm both. you know what i mean. >> cenk: how how, what does that mean? how are you both. >> the one thing that the republicans i think do bring up is the fact that they don't like victims. do you like a victim? someone who just-- >> cenk: i might want to help them. >> i'm talking of victims of people who are living off the system. >> cenk: you mean like bankers yeah i don't like them. >> have you ever watched msn lock up. there are a lot of people in there that they go to jail and they live off the system. >> cenk: well, they're in jail. they don't have a choice. >> but the point is that they--some people, they try to better themselves. as far as the republicans the bottom line is, i don't know, they have to--if you're really working to make yourself better, then you should. if you're living off the system then that's not good
absolutely care. barack obama said george w. bush signing statements and he made the executive branch too powerful, but it turns out he didn't have a problem with executive orders and signing statements, he had a problem with who was doing it. we and independents in florida want a president who will stay within the parameters of the legitimate authority of the presidency. president obama is not pressing independents in florida by running on bill clinton's record and blaming george w. bush. independents are saying, what about your record, mr. president. >> we'll talk a lot more about the undecided states of america not hour. be sure to stay with us for that. we'll talk about new hampshire, the four electoral votes there could really be the difference in this historically close race. >>> this is a story that has a lot of people. we have the latest on malala, the 15-year-old girl shot by the taliban. s everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all
to trumpet the george bush political agenda. that was wrong. it offended many of the survivors of first responder is your i felt i needed to stand that. >> i question her judgment. only 22 voted against it. everyone from wisconsin voted for it, including medical lows. it bothers me because i was there helping out and if you talk to george pataki and mayor guiliani, they said i was a force of nature because i was up there so often helping people get things. deny give the appropriation. -- congress, she did not appropriate the money. congress did not appropriate the money. that is why they did i get the treatment they did. it put in a rejection as to who could get it. talking about her judgment, not only did she vote against this. she voted against the alldinejad -- out of 535, sectors except three condemned ahmadinejad. tammy baldwin voted against the sanctions. i do not question her patriotism. i questioned her judgment. on these things that make america less safe. >> discussion about iran. why did you take $60,000 from a group that is opposed to sanctions which he tried to raise in the
terms as wisconsin governor and was george w. bush's secretary of health and human services. she's 50, openly gay and a 14-year veteran of the house of representatives. up for grabs is the senate seat left open by retiring democrat herb cole which republicans desperately want to help them win a majority. >> i'm tommy thompson. >> reporter: both sides are pooring in cash, a state record $40 million has been spent so far on this election. almost three-fourths coming from groups that aren't directly associated with the candidates but are very interested in the outcome. >> you can't turn on your tv right now without running into ads for tammy and tommy. >> reporter: daniel bice has been covering wisconsin politics for more than 20 years. this race he says is all about attacking the opponent. >> she's trying to define thompson as someone who was a good governor but no longer supports the interests of wisconsin. >> tommy thompson, he's not for you anymore. >> he's trying to define her not as the nice tammy baldwin that you see on tv but as an extreme liberal who votes in a way people in wis
that this is the kind of stuff i believe the president has had to endure. george bush never had somebody saying that the only reason why x, y or person supports you because you're both white. that's the extreme ridiculousness of these comments. >> let's talk about the hurricane sandy situation. obviously this is going to come crashing through the east coast, including potentially new yoark. what is your view now about where we are with the information? >> this is the time people should be putting plans together. they should be securing things in their lawn, they should be preparing to live without power if power outages happen. this is a very, very serious storm. we have seen the last two years what a hurricane and ice storm last october can do to our communities and everybody should take it seriously. >> it's also an interesting political situation in the sense it's so close to an election. if the federal government is deemed not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if h
's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder ether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud colin for standing with him. >> with me now is newark mayor and obama supporter, cory booker. i watched you this morning. you seemed to be slightly biting your lip about this, but a lot of people have been getting very angry because they say whichever way john sununu tries to wriggle off the hook on this, i asked him the question, he gave a blunt answer. i asked him to clarify it, he gave a sort of blunter second answer. leaving no real wriggle room at all. the guy was saying, without any doubt, that the reason that colin powell, a four-star retired general, one of the great statesmen of modern america, the reason he has voted for barack obama is because of the color of his
in the business of what he does. now, tell us about george w. bush. i mean, you had to up -- tell me about what he is like and did you ever have any squabbles with the bush administration over coverage of things? >> we have certainly squabbles with the bush administration. now with george w. bush. i first met him down here in austin when he was governor and running for president. one of the traditions in a place like abc news is when you get into a presidential election year you invite all the candidates to come in and meet in an informal editorial meeting in new york, and then al gore who was vice president of the united states, but george w. bush's people said thank you very much. you contend austin. we flew down here. peter and i and some others flew down to interview george w. bush. my personal feelings always were he was very pleasant. he was very enjoyable to spend time with. very quick. i always felt the media underestimated his intelligence, certainly underestimated his political savvy. i was always very impressed. that said, particularly as we get into september 11th and wars in afghanist
suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high
with some of the language and so forth and back away but he was pretty close to george w. bush. president bush felt that billy graham made a tremendous difference in his life in a personal way in terms of his faith in helping rescue his life. i think he was pretty close to president george w. bush, as well. is not spoken a lot in terms of campaign literature but i think there has been some issues out there among evangelicals and some skepticism about governor romney's mormon faith and i think billy graham's blessing is an important signal that it is ok to vote for a mormon. there have been full page ads and so forth. i think that is a very important thing in terms of the romney folks for billy graham to give that signal. host:rob christensen is with us. he is talking to us from raleigh and you can read more of his writings at news observer.com. we want to get more input and conversation going with some of our viewers and listeners. in order to do that, pick up the phone or send us a message -- we have a special line for folks calling from north carolina -- you can also send us e-mails --
, george herbert walker bush has endorsed mitt romney all along and, frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on issues or whether he's got a slightly different reason for preferring president obama. >> what reason would that be? >> well, i think when you have somebody of your own race that you're proud of being president of the united states, i applaud collin for standing with zblim this is why i'm not a republican anymore. this is a perfect example of -- and i say this on national tv. when john sununu's the gop poster boy and spokesman and he says stuff like that, that is why colin powell and people like myself and others, we're still -- you know, we may lean that way but we don't want to own it because of people like that. they're completely out of touch. talk about out of touch. you're supporting the president of the united states because he's black? maybe in 2008 i will admit when i voted for president obama, first democrat i ever voted for in my life, president obama, part of it was that he was african-american, i won't lie.
organized campaigns that we've seen in recent memory was the 2004 george w. bush campaign. karl rove engineered a very impressive microtargeting effort, where they started to integrate people's consumer preferences, with their voting data, to try to more precise, so instead of just saying ok, we're going to target everyone that we know is, say, you know, a latino woman, you can actually individually start to target people based on what kind of car they drive or what kind of cereal they eat, all kind factors from when you fill out surveys or that kind of thing. the obama campaign did that even more impressive in 2008 and they've been building on that ever since, so they've built a formidable, digital integrated data targeting effort that they have put together with this vast network of field offices on the ground, and neighborhood teams and volunteers and through facebook and everything else. so they know practically who all of their voters are. the millions and millions of people that they expect or hope they can drive out to the polls to vote for obama. >> molly ball is a staff writ
for the george w. bush administration. she is now a fox news host. >> you can imagine if he said, as commander-in-chief, it is important for me to stay back here at the white house. just imagine everybody would have thought, wow, how responsible. >> once the president made a statement, i'm not sure what he should have done. >> democrat, eleanor holmes thornton represents the district of columbia. >> obvious sit in mourning for several days and not go about our daily business. >> septembers', secretary of state hillary clinton suggests the attack was a spontaneous attack about the antiis lamb video. >> there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. >> white house press secretary jake carney explicitly blames the video the next day. >> these proprosts -- proe protests were in reaction to a video. we have no information to suggest it was preplanned attack. >> later that day, at the transfer of a ceremony at joint base andrews, clinton talks again about the video. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video tha
does he bring up the, well you remember when president george w bush took off with the sur plus and -- surplus. do people even care at this point? they say i don't care. my wallet is at a deficit. >> i don't know that most people are particularly interested with what the economy is like. is like four or eight years ago. it is exactly as you say. how am i doing now, and how am i going to do in the future as opposed to if you got it worse from bush. he is not running against bush. he is running against romney who staked out his own territory. ii think he has to address the economy right now and going forward. and then excuses don't really sell at this point. >> susan, you always break it down with great analysis and perspective. we do appreciate you. want to remind everybody that you can read her syndicated column in newspapers across the country every wednesday and friday. >>> right now hurricane sandy is bearing down on the east coast. the impact from the monster storm is expected to stretch for hundreds and hundreds of miles as it makes its way up the coast. are you prepared? c
and former chief economic adviser to president george w. bush. welcome back to the show. always great to have you here. >> glad to be with you. gerri: i want to play a little bit of the sounds of our viewers can get a sense of the town. >> short. >> the jobs, where are the 9 million more jobs the president obama promised his stimulus would have created by. [speaking in native tongue] there in china, mexico, canada, countries that have made the sales more attractive for entrepreneurs and business and investment. even as president obama's policies have made it less attractive for them here. thing. gerri: and we have one more jobs report to come. what do you expect? is it going to help romney or the president? >> i don't think it's going to make much difference at all. if you look at the picture that the economy has been traveling through for the past three years now, basically we're in a situaaion where we have continued slow growth. we have growth at about 2 percent per year since the turnaround in june of 2009. i normal recovery should have doubled that, and unless we get to double that kind
this seem reasonable this could happen? >> well, remember that it was the policy of the george w. bush administration to seek negotiations with iran in the second term and president bush and president obama have had a very, policies very close to each other. we, both administrations wanted to deny iran a nuclear weapon. both have been willing to negotiate with iran but iran hasn't been open to that. both administrations sanction iran and threatened the use of military force should that be necessary. i think that is the proper policy. so i think there is large-scale agreement in washington that that should be the construct. if president ama is reelected or if governor romney wins the eltion, i would think it does make sense for us to have negotiations with iran. we certainly have the time and space available to do that. negotiations don't mean at all that you give away the store. negotiations mean that you try to stop them from building a nuclear weapon but try to do it by peaceful diplomatic means with a threat of force behin you. if negotiations don't succeed you always have that opti
